"Yes, wo occupy the whole building?three stories, flfiy-two nnd ?^'^J

without perceptible jar or vibration, with a 'click ' that does ono good tu IUl?n to.

* "This is tho press wo uso for our finest Illustrated Catalogue. School Annual,
vnd other Hook Work j prints a sheet 31x60. It is driven by a direct, individual
iloctric motor?no bolts or pulleys."
"Theso two aro for Kail road and Commercial Work, tho largest one beim: ?*ed
for copying-ink work almost exclusively. All of our pressen Have automatic cotintini ?
machines which register tho sheets us they aro printed, leaving no chance for er Urs i i

sharpens a knife forty-eight inches long. It used to cost a dollar when we sent ak if-?
out to ho sharpened ; wo have a knife to Bharpcn about every live hours, l^uU? :? ,
little saving, don't you think?"
"Over there is the largo olectric motor, and beyond is the gas engine, which we
keop as a 1 reserve force.' "
"Supposo wo take the elevator, now, to tho top floor."
11 No, the largo motor runs tho elevator, too."
" How many employees? About sixty, all told."
" Very few people have an idea as to tho extent of our establishment until they
go through it; tuen they invariably express astonishment."
" Yes, it takes lots of printing to keep them busy constantly. Sometimes we
wonder ourselves where it all comes from."
",N(i, no I The peoplo realize that the newspaper is not tho only method of
advertising. For certain purposes, the circular is incomparably superior."
"The two mediums are necessary each to tho other. They do not conflict."
"Wo print a great many Circulars, Price-Lists, and the liko. They have lobe
gotten out very quickly sometimes."
" Letter Circular? Ten thousand in two hours, if necessary."
" Oh, of course. A reasonable amount of reading-matter."
"That is a Stamping Machine; for stamping in gold or silver on the covers of
Hooks, stamping Kibbon Badges, etc."
"Yes, wo have had it several years."
" Pun- gold."
" Muling Muchines. Tbid one is the kind in ordinary use. AVe brag on the
other one: it takes a sheet fifty inches wide. We can rule a job on it that we had
to henil to Huston once; couldn't get it ruled in Philadelphia."
"Just finished a Pay-Roll Sheet 10x48. Think of a sheet 4? inches wide "
'?Yes, It had a printed heading. A largo machine in one department calls f??i
large machines in other departments. In this instance, the largu press would have
been Of no use without tho largo ruling machine."
y "This is a Kound-Cornoring Machine; this a Sewing M.?-Inno that will stitch
through half an inch of paper, nnd make a siitoh three-quarters of an inch long, if
wo wi-h it so; this a Punching Machine, and ibis an Eyoletling Machine, for eyelets
like you see in Calendars, Card Price-Lists, etc."
" Folding Mac hine?folds eigh*., twelve, sixteen, twenty-four, or thirty-two
pagcB ; almost any si/.e page."
"Then, here's a Wire Stitching Machine, a double-header?stitches on two
different kinds of work at tho same time. One may be an eight-page pamphlet and
the other may be as thick as the Century >r Harper's Magazine. You've noticed ilia
wire staples that hind them together, name kind of machine: takes the steel win
from a i-pnol, cuts it to an udjoaiuhlc length, forms it im<> a staple, drives it through
the book, ami clinches it ?120 stu| les on (ach side a minute: luster than an operator
rj can handle the work. Then the cover- are pasted or glued on afterward."
h "t)h, yes, we bind all kinds of magazines."
9 " A'on can see the progress of a Ledger, Journal, or Cash Hook being made to
w. order here. Firsl ruled, then the bending printed, then tho shcc.i inspected, folded,
J2> sewed, and now the Leather Minding being put on. Lots of people think we hoy
the covers already made, hut w? du it all ourselves."
" Didn't know we hud nn Engraving Department? "
"Any and every kind, from the design for a Catalogue Cover, or & Letter
[leading, to cutting a wood type."
" Not much to be seen in that room. Tho " collating " or " gathering " of tho
"forms" or "signatures" of a pamphlet or book is deno there. The forms are
arranged in sequence on the tables ami girls walk around iho tallies anil gather one of
each form until the complete book is gathered. Then it is ready for the stitcher.
Sometimes a dozen girls are walking around the tables, collating, at one lime."
"A Paging Machine, an old-style Perforating Machine?but I forgot to show
von a modern Perforator, one with livo times tho capacity of this one ; wo'll see thu:.
before wo go down stairs. Surplus stock of envelopes, material for binding, etc."
" On this floor we do all the type-sotting and proof-reading?wo pay particular
attention to our proof-reading, ami you have no idea of the care that a painstaking
proof-reader exercises. We recently had a University man to write us that our proof?
reading was equal or better than they had been gutting in Philadelphia."
" Doesn't matter?we sometimes have Gorman, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew.
English, "as sho is spoke." or rather written, makes it interesting to a degree. Of
course, we have all tue Dictionaries at our lingers'ends: Webster, the Standard,
" A'os, customers uso different standards. We have just finished a Catalogue lor
a School that uses Worcester, and, of course, we had to conform to Worcester in our
?pelting throughout the Catalogue."
" Other reference books liko the Encyclopedia Britannien, Appleton's, National,
various Atlases, Dictionaries of Foreign Languages, Algebraical Works, the Poeta,
Novelists, Philosophers, etc., must be at hand, also. You would bo surprised at the
familiar quotations that are misquoted. We verify and compare whenever there is
doubt. Tins is the duty of tho proof-road er and Ids assistant."
"Hero aro hundreds of panes of standing type?price-lists, railroad tarilt's, and
items that are changed slightly and printed frequently."
" A*os, enough capital in standing typo to equip a good-sized prii ? ? g office."
"Theso cabinets contain 'sorts,' or extra quantities of various lei'. rs, llgures. or
nigns that may bo needed any moment. Probably u ton that has neve: been used."
"For instlinee, a Price-List may be ordered, and it will bo full of unusual
measurements (123 y^Vt x l'Jj,';), signs (10? SO' 47"), reference marks (* t } ' (HI),
or may requiro n very large quantity of sumo particular figure. An ordinary font ol
typo contains only a limited number of such characters, so wo prepare for these prob?
able demands as our judgment suggests. We printed a job a few days ago that
required nearly three thousand (:i.OOO) parenthesis ( ) marks. The number that
usually accompanies tho quantity of type necessary to set up such st job as a whole,
would be about twenty-live ; this shows the necessity for 'sorts.'"
" AVo have in these cabinets nearly ten thousand engravings ? ?11 kinds, all
catalogued, numbered, and in their proper places. AVe can usoall) lind any one
desired in live minutes."
" Tho Stereotyping and Rubber Stamp Departments?it's rather warm in there.
Well, you can take a look at that another time."
"Taking too much of my time? No, this is my business. If you aro interested,
j-ou will be telling some of your friends, and that's just what wo want."
" Down to the stock-room, next."
" Keeps ono man busy all tho timo getting out stock for the presses, etc."
. "AVaita moment, here's the Railroad Ticket Printing Machine. Prints and
numbers them at one operation. Operators aro hold responsible for correct count, etc.
Of course, every ticket is checked, double checked, before it comes out of the 'cage.' "
? " Don't average one error u year."
"There's another machine?for printing long runs on envelopes?that's as fast no
t the Ticket Machine."
"Nearly ten thousand an hour."
" Automatically, of couriie."
" Here's the stock-room."
" A great many of our papers are rnado to order : our Stone Bond, and Crystal
Spring Brands?you've noticed the water-inarks ? "
" Five or ten tons at ono timo is not an unusual order for this kind?to your left."
" Why, tho presses in the adjoining room alone will uso up two or three tons in
a day, sometimes."
" No, wo make no effort to 'job' paper. Just for our own needs."
" Here's where wo kcop our record of each order?if you instruct us to duplicate
your last order for Letter Rends or a Blank Hook-, we get tho date from our Ledger
then the number of the job. This number indicates an envelope containing your
original copy of the job, tho proof, tho '?(>. K." sheet, and a completed copy. The
record will also show who received the order, whether by letter, 'phone, or personally,
the date stock was gotten out, tho quantity, then the names of the various oper?
ators in the several departments who put 'timo' on the job, the machines on which
it was run, the date it went to the delivery or shipping clerk, the amount of the
charge, the cost, and finally, the receipt from tho customer showing that il was
received in good order."
" Detail? yes, infinite; but each job has its peculiarities that make it different
from its companion that is being handled at tho same time, requiring tho exercise ?.l
different degrees of knowledge, experience, or expertness?so there is no danger of
"No. no I we have orders from nil over Virginia, AVest Arirginia, North Carolina.
Tennessee, etc., and at this moment we are tilling an order for ten thousand Cata?
logues for a customer in AVashington, and another order for about ten thousand
Circulars for a customer in Now York. Both orders received under competitive bids."
" Electric Bells, Spenking Tubes, and Dummy Elevators to each department,
I and Individual Telephone to the Foreman, savo many a step and a great deal of
J time, and each moment counts on a ' rush ' job."
" Yos, its interesting to us, as often as we go through, and a double plcasuro

EYES, EARS AND NOSES.
Sight, Hearing and Smell In tho Ages
Long Ago and Now.
It Is n vory curious question, especially
If the question include tho first unimnls
created as well ns tho first men, whether
thero ho nny difference between Bight,
hearing nnd smell in thoso early days und
at tho present time.
Smell wag one of tiio most important
souses then, fur it aroused appetite, en?
abled the animals to seok nnd find tholr
mates and to track tiioir prey, nnd it gnvo
them warning of n foo's approach or pres?
ence. With man now it is of only third
rate or fourth rato importance.
The organ of smoll among somo of tho
first creatures wns not near tho end of the
snout or nose, but near tho brain, and wns
well pudded or cushioned with fat and pro?
tected by a lender skin or. by scales over?
lapping each othor.
Hut it. was not nioro keen or more deli?
cate then than it is now, especially in our
hunting dogs. Cats, too?and these are
among tho later animals?hnvo this sonso
in groat perfection. A cat has what is
culled tho homing instinct, and If carried
away from homo in tliu dark it can return
by precisely tho snmo road. It is said that
this is because every field, ditch, village
or house leaves its own odor in just tho
right order on tho cat's brain, liku n suc?
cession of pictures, and the animal smells
Its wuy buck as wo would seo ours.
The organ of smoll seems to commiiui
cato with the memory, for the scent of n
ilower will sometimes bring back to a
grown man tho scene associated with it in
bis childhood, nnd a thousand other sub?
tle thoughts und feelings, so that he seems
literally carried back into his past lifo.
The first creatures knew nothing of fra
grance. Tho sweot smolling flowers were
not then in existence. Besides, their
brains were too small to enjoy the delicate
pleasures of swout odors.
Hearing wus comparatively poor with
tho lust animals, for often an external ear
v.-ns lacking. The outside ear not only
protects the delicate nerves within, like a
hood, but also gathers or collects Rounds.
A man of defective hearing instinctively
puts his hand behind his our for this pur?
pose. Birds that hnvo no external ear can
easily he surprised by night and taken,
while their acute vision shows them every
movement by day.
Tiio savage races had little Idea of music.
They liked noises as children like drums
and horns. The savages on the Midway
plalsanoc had great delight in their native
music, which was discord to our oars. It
required larger brains und. finer training
to have tho full delight in melody and har?
mony that our musicians possess now.
Tho eye, also, in the gigantic creatures of
oarly periods wus sometimes rudimentary,
though, again, it was of largo size and pro?
tected by ? ring of bony plutes instead of
tho lovely silken eyelnslius that protect and
adorn the human oyo nuw. In some of
those llzardlike animals that burrowed in
tiio mud thero were three pairs of cyolids,
ouo of them transparent, so that tho ani?
mal might sco through it closed.
It is said that early writers, liko Homer,
speak of very fow colors, chiefly red, or
"purple," ns thoy called it then.
Enjoyment of beauty, of graceful curves
nnd linos and proportion, or of harmonious
nnd varied colors und thoir delicate tints
belongs to a later state of cultivation, a
moro developed brain, than most of the
early races knew.?E. F. Mosby in Phila?
Seized tho Kxpress Train.
A curious nnd amusing incident occur?
red the othor day at Angers, in Frunco.
M. Cnnquiu'et, a miller of Condon, had a
claim against tho local railway company
which tho lattor refused to pay In spito of
tho finding of tho court in tho miller's fu
The claim amounted to 23,000 francs,
and the miller requested tho brokers to
distrain on the company for that sum.
Now In Frnnoo when onco the hrokora

permit from tho president of tho court In

A Passion For Muttons.
Louis XIV, tho "grand roonnrquo,"
had a positivo passion for buttons. In
1685, when his crazo was at its highest, ho
spent no loss than $600,000 in this strange
form of indulgence. Among the items of
which this expenditure was made up are
tho following: Aug. 1, 1685, two diamond
buttons, value 67,860 francs; 75 diamond
buttons, value 686,703 francs. On tho
hut tons for a single vest he spent 0206,000.
Of the 864 "boutonicrs" used ltiii con?
tained five diamonds each. It is cstimntul
that during his lifetime this foolish mon?
arch spent no less than ?5,000,000 on but?
